This won't help you in your quest, I'm afraid. What you have found is a text version of a letter written in Early Modern English, and the Optical Character Recognition software clearly couldn't make head or tail of the old characters. The actual word in the book scan reads as the Early Modern English equivalent of 'sovereign', not 'rejTig' at all.

See this page of the scanned book.

Good luck with your research!
